The Istanbul track is another of the modern circuits but more interesting for spectators and drivers than some of the other recent additions, Bahrain for example. A big difficulty here will be keeping tyre wear under control and some teams may opt for two tyre stops.
The first tyre problem will be early on when the cars are fully loaded with fuel and they have to handle the long turn eight. There are also enough twists and turns on the track to put pressure on the tyres throughout the race.
Getting the right set-up will be important and tricky as the circuit is a mix of fast straights and fast and slow corners.
Jenson Button won the race from pole last year.
